Hi IDEO!


QUESTION 1: Why should we pick you?


QUESTION 2: What will you do in our two week residency?

 

I'd like to take some appliances you use around the studio and give them more personality. Maybe I'll find something more inspiring in your office, but here are some of my examples. 

'The Gambler' will only toast your bread if you win.
'Fanboy' follows movement and turns itself on when someone comes close to it.
'Kinky Ketty' gets boiling when you pat her on the handle.

Interaction with these machines would get people to develop a certain relationship with them and not see them just as tools. Hopefully, this would also act against the way we tend to think about these appliances nowadays - as cheap, disposable things with short lifespan ending in landfills.
